This game is a side scrolling platform game where you are Shatterhand, a cyborg that only needs his hand to fight his way through eight levels of machines, monsters, aliens and tanks. I am no real fan of brawling games like this, but the graphics have got to be the best on Nintendo EVER. Then to put a twist on the punching (because punching would get boring), you pick up items along the way, boxes which you can select a component. Collect three components and it will make a flying robot with a different power for each of the components. Such as collect AAA and it will make a flame throwing robot, or collect ABA and it will make a robot that throws bombs across the screen. It is a fabulous game with some good challenge.
